Paranoid Penguin - Linux VPNs with OpenVPN, Part II
At this point, I've got good news and bad news. The good news is, you've made it through the most complicated part of OpenVPN configuration: creating a PKI and generating certificates and related files. The bad news is, you've also reached the end of this month's column!
If you can't wait until next time to use these certificates, to get OpenVPN running, you probably can figure out how to do so yourself. See the openvpn(8) man page and the sample configuration files server.conf.gz and client.conf under /usr/share/doc/openvpn/examples/sample-config-files, upon which my examples are based. Good luck!
